Our Christmas Tree

This tree is upstairs in the Living Room. The ornaments on this tree are very special.
 My Dad bought me a Hallmark ornament every year until he passed away 2 years ago and this is the collection.

I found this tree at my favorite thrift shop and was able to get it for $20.  It was in good condition and I loved the tall slim shape. 

I used one of the urns from the front porch to give it a potted effect.

I have always wanted a flocked tree but couldn't justify the cost. So,  I came up with my own method of flocking using latex paint and glitter.
  You can see the tutorial here.  

I added lots of red and green bulbs in different textures; flocked, shiny, matte and sparkly.  The monogrammed "ornaments" are internet printables in Dollar Tree frames. 

I'm linking my tree up to
The amazing Tree Party @ Thrifty Chic Decor.
 Merry Christmas!


  1. Great job! Beautiful collection that I know you must cherish. Happy Holidays!

  2. Your tree is beautiful! I love your color choices!

  3. I love it! Love how it's completely covered with ornaments. I try to do that but my daughter doesn't like it. I say the more stuff I can cram on it the better but apparently it's not just my tree...so we have to compromise. One of these days I'm going to buy another tree. One for her and one for me. Then we can both just go crazy.

  4. Absolutely beautiful! And I love your mantel too!

  5. where in the world did you find those giant snowflakes? i have a snowflake tree and would LOVE those.
